Moulin-à-Vent, Les Rouchaux, Louis Boillot 2022 En Primeur - Case of 6



£81.00


70+ year old vines again, they use some whole bunches and the wine was raised in demi-muids and less than 10% new oak. Offers a lovely sweetness to the nose, pretty dark fruits, with some wildness and high-toned red notes. The palate is sweet-framed and voluminous, seductive and cool, with lots of chalky grip, tantalising acidity, and spice. Shows very good energy and follow through, and genuine lift. Louis reckon this “could do 30 years”. 0-7 years.

Domaine Louis Boillot et Fils

Louis Boillot makes superb wines from no less than 16 appellations both in the Côte de Beaune and Côte de Nuits, where he himself is based, in Chambolle-Musigny.

In fact, he shares cellars with his wife, Ghislaine Barthod. With their son, Clément, recently taking over the winemaking, these domaines will increasingly be viewed as one. They also have the same team working the vineyards and much of the magic appears in the wines of both domaines. The spread-out nature of the Boillot vineyards is down to French inheritance laws and the constant fragmentation of family holdings. Louis is from Gevrey-Chambertin – and his brother runs Domaine Lucien Boillot there – whilst the family originates around Volnay in the Côte de Beaune which explains his 2.5 ha of Volnay and Pommard vines. The domaine totals 7 ha of vines: over 3 ha are in Gevrey-Chambertin with 1.5 ha split between Fixin, Chambolle-Musigny, Nuits-Saint-Georges and Côte de Nuits Villages. Even on the trickier soils of Volnay and Pommard – known for giving wilder tannins – his wines share much of the suppleness, pure fruit and ripe tannins of the Barthod Chambolle-Musignys. In recent years Louis, like many Burgundians, has looked south to Beaujolais, and in his case Moulin-à-Vent, where he makes Gamay that is very much in the mould of a Côte d’Or Pinot Noir.
